XtraTime Web Desk: The Champions Trophy win last year changed the mindset of the Pakistan cricket team a lot and it has brought a lot of stability in the test team as well, thinks their skipper Sarfraz Ahmed.
He also gave a lot of credit to former Pakistan captain and current chairman of selectors Inzamam-ul-Haq.
“I was made the captain before the Champions Trophy and we had a very young team. My job was to give confidence to the young players and the way we won the tournament was a big boost,” Sarfraz said at the captains’ press meet ahead of the Asia Cup starting Saturday.
“After that Champions Trophy, I met the chief selector (Inzamam) and told him that we don’t want too many changes in the team and that’s how the stability came about. We have got some brilliant young players like Fakhar Zaman, Faheem Ashraf, Hasan Ali, who are all improving day by day. Our ODI performance improved once the youngsters came into the system,” said Sarfraz.
